Texas A&M University is requiring students, faculty and staff to register online if they are traveling for to any location that's been designated by the CDC for the coronavirus.

The university announced it created a mandatory reporting portal for all persons traveling from or through any location that's been designated as Level 1, 2 or 3 by the CDC for COVID-19.

Level 1 countries include Hong Kong. Level 2 countries include Japan. Level 3 countries include Italy, South Korea, Iran and China.

The registration is required for both personal and university business travel before leaving or immediately upon return.

Texas A&M is also requiring individuals who traveled from or through a Level 2 or 3 country are required to self-isolate off-campus upon returning from those countries for 14 days before returning to campus. The university says this is especially important as some on our campus are traveling over spring break.

The university is asking students, faculty and staff to pass along the new requirement to friends and colleagues in case they haven't heard yet.
